Partners in Health and Wholeness (PHW), the Council’s faith-based health initiative, is now offering mini-grants to support congregations in your efforts to promote healthy, active lifestyles. In order to qualify, a congregation must first become PHW-certified – i.e., offer healthier church meals; name a health contact person; maintain tobacco-free buildings and take part in other activities, like addressing health as a faith issue two or more times per year in a sermon or other part of regular service.
The amount of each mini-grant corresponds to the three different levels of PHW Certification – $500 for Bronze, $750 for Silver and $1000 for Gold. To learn more or to apply, please visit us online at http://www.healthandwholeness.org/phw-certification. We will offer this opportunity to congregations as long as funds last.
